Dr. Julia R. Heiman is the Director of The Kinsey Institute and professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and Department of Clinical Psychiatry at Indiana University.

Dr. Heiman has devoted her career to achieving a better understanding of the physiological and emotional dimensions of sexuality. Her research is also concerned with developing successful interventions to help people overcome sexual problems. “From the beginning,” Dr. Heiman explains, “I’ve been interested in how sexuality changes, either on its own or with some kind of external attention. How do we come up with newer and better ways to measure important aspects of sexuality?”
